Narrated Al-Walid bin ‘Aizar:

I heard Abi `Amr ‘Ash-Shaibani saying, “The owner of this house.” he pointed to `Abdullah’s house, “said, ‘I asked the Prophet (sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam) ‘Which deed is loved most by Allah?” He replied, ‘To offer prayers at their early (very first) stated times.’ ” `Abdullah asked, “What is the next (in goodness)?” The Prophet (sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam) said, “To be good and dutiful to one’s parents,” `Abdullah asked, “What is the next (in goodness)?” The Prophet said, To participate in Jihad for Allah’s Cause.” `Abdullah added, “The Prophet (sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam) narrated to me these three things, and if I had asked more, he would have told me more.”

Abu Usaid Malik ibne-RabT’ah As-Sa’idT Radiyallahu ‘anhu narrates that while we were with Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam, a man from Bani Salamah came and said: O Rasulallah!

Is there any kindness left that I can do for my parents, after their death? He said: Yes! By supplicating for them, asking for forgiveness for them, carrying out their final instructions after their death, joining ties of relationship which are dependant on them and honouring their friends.

(Abu Dawud)


Malik or Ibne-Malik Radiyallahu ‘anhuma narrates: I heard Nabi Saliallahu ‘alaihi wasallam saying:

He who has his parents or one of them alive and did not treat them well will enter Fire, and Allah will remove His Mercy from him. And any Muslim who sets free a Muslim slave is liberated from the Fire.
(Abu Ya’la. Musnad Ahmad, Tabarani, Targhib)
